Chess UltraTournament ChampionThe Tournament Champion achievement in Chess Ultra worth 218 pointsWin a 32 player tournament
I discussed how to do the 32-player achievement. This isn't nearly as involved, but if you have the means, doing that first will get you an achievement and progress towards this.

But really, this one is a piece of cake compared to that. First of all, you're doing 4-player tournaments, not 32. 3 alts is very manageable. So, assuming you have 3 alts, here's what you need to do. (Mostly stolen from my other solution.)

This achievement requires you to be really really REALLY good at chess, because not only will you be up against 5 people in a row who really like chess (like me), but worse, you'll be up against THEIR CHESS ENGINES. So you neither need to be really really REALLY good at chess, or you need to be able to make friends super easily. (I can do that, too.)

OR...

You can do it by yourself.

[crickets]

Yes, you can, in fact, solo boost this on one console. However, it may not be how you're thinking.

If you don't have 3 alt accounts lying around, well, that's not all that weird, actually. Make some email accounts at Gmail or Hotmail or pickyourfavoriteemailsite.com. Then register them on Xbox.com or on the console.

You should be friends with these newly minted fake-people so that you can do the next part, which involves you and your new friends joining 4-person tournaments that you set up and fill with these 3 pseudo-individuals. You also should note that the game needs to know that these not-quite-alive beings have access to the game, so you should have them play the game a little. I had all my critters run a pawn forward against the Novice AI and take a knight that they usually just left there. Now you just have to do the tournaments!

Here's the kicker... none of you has to actually play the games! A lot of the delay in this game is actually in loading the games, but once your accounts have the game on their tags, that's most of the work! So what about those accounts?

1: You can create 3 tournaments at a time, so make 4-person tournaments. Select your 3 mostly-dead-with-funky-Xbox-tags-like-TurtleSpit32 people. Make sure that at the bottom right of the screen, it says that you can't select more.

2: Log all of the tags in...and have them go to the Tournament page and delete your brand-spanking-new tournaments. Deleting the tournaments automatically forces them to resign, and their opponent wins the game. (Note that if you don't actually look at the bracket, the game may give you a friendly note that there's a server error. You probably don't have a potential opponent on the other side of the bracket yet. It's okay. Keep the tag logged in and come back to it. It'll be okay.)

3: Once an alt has logged in and deleted all of the tournaments, you need to sign in another user. Go to the main screen, press cn_Y and switch tags. You don't have to leave the game to do this.

4: Make sure that YOU ARE THE ONLY ACCOUNT THAT DOESN'T DELETE THE TOURNAMENTS. Now, that seems like common sense, but hey, I'm not judging here.

5: You actually do need to go back and look at the Tournament page for your achievement to pop. And it will, with an obscenely low % of people who have this. Because none of them has 3 extra tags lying around, do they?

Quitting out works wonders... I went from 5 to 20 tournaments in 10 minutes. Remember not to play the games, because loading the games takes more time.

Hope this helps! toast
